A restaurant known for its revolving sushi bar will open the 2nd spot in NJ

Kura Sushi, known for its revolving sushi bar, is opening its second restaurant in New Jersey this summer.

The company announced that the new Kura Restaurant will open in Jersey City’s Newport Tower at 525 Washington Blvd.

It has yet to announce an official opening date.

Kura Sushi offers an extensive sushi bar and an assortment of Japanese dishes, such as teppanyaki, ramen, udon and ojyu.

The restaurant’s revolving sushi bar meanders through the dining room with plates covered in sushi.

The express belt – or “sushi route” – is positioned above the revolving sushi bar.

Customers can place orders using a tablet at their table, and the Express Mat transports orders directly from the kitchen to them.

The sushi chain made its Garden State debut in 2020 in Fort Lee.
